Measuring Our Impact

Since 1994, we’ve been measuring and evaluating the outputs and outcomes of our lending.

Craft3 works towards a Pacific Northwest that is thriving, just, and empowered, where communities, individuals, and ecosystems prosper. While our primary tool is capital — lending and other investments — we also build relationships and amplify the voices of others.
